Watch Movie Trailer
Living in the wake of collapsed coffee prices and lingering intolerance created by Idi Amin’s regime of terror, a group of Christian, Muslim and Jewish Ugandan coffee farmers challenged economic and historical hurdles by forming “Delicious Peace Coffee Cooperative” in 2004. The co-op had twin goals: economic development and the building of peaceful interrelationships. Partnering the next year with a Fair Trade U.S. distributor, the farmers’ standards of living are improving, harmony is flourishing, and their messages of peace and fair wages are spreading to their neighbors as well as to their coffee customers in the United States. DELICIOUS PEACE GROWS IN A UGANDAN COFFEE BEAN is a 40-minute documentary narrated by actor Ed O’Neill that tells the farmers’ uplifting and inspiring story. Director/cinematographer/editor Curt Fissel has received Emmy nominations, a CINE Golden Eagle Award, and many journalism awards over his 30-year career.
